HIGH Bickington Badminton Club held its second novice tournament at the community centre last week, with a number of players of all ages showing off their potential.

The tournament is designed to be fun, with a number of very close games and a few surprises in the junior and senior draws.

In the junior singles, James Episkipos got the better of Tom Wilkinson, winning the final 15-9 to pick up the trophy.

Wilkinson was also a runner-up in the junior doubles, where his partner Charlie Kindon-Hibbs and he were beaten 11-8 by Morwenna May and Aaron Beel.

Ben Beel was successful in the senior singles, beating Keith Butler 15-5, and a runner-up in the doubles, losing out in the round robin along with partner Pat Bond to winners Judy Down and Luke Stone.

Trophies were also on offer to the player of the year in the senior and junior sections, as well as the most entertaining players.

This year, it was James Episkipos who took the junior player of the year title, with Keith Butler crowned senior player of the year.

The most entertaining player awards went to Norah Hale in the senior section and Charlie Kingdon-Hibbs in the juniors.

High Bickington Badminton Club is always looking for new players of all levels. As well as the development club, they also have a league club with teams in North Devon divisions 1 and 2.
